Road works


Letter from Cadent Gas Network



Dear Sir or Madam 



I would like to update you regarding Cadent gas works, previously known as National Grid, that are soon to return to Bedford Road on phase 2 of our project in Wootton.  We are starting outside 109 Bedford Road and finishing at the junction of Cause End. 



The work is due to start 30.04.18, this shouldn’t affect your gas supply, and we aim to complete the works within 15 weeks.



We will need to use traffic lights throughout our works to ensure the safety of pedestrians and our work force; these will be manned at peak times.



This essential gas work is to ensure a reliable and safe gas supply in the area; we would like to thank you in advance for your patience.



Kind Regards,



Laura Thomson
